    Awesome update - love the LED's for the SCSI/IDE

    I might see if the Father-in-Law is up for helping me with a similar project, something like this would be a great replacment for my Fugly A4K Elbox Power Tower

    Small update today. (one new picture)
    Made a couple of extenders for the Mouse/joy.port.

    Things still needed to be done:
    - Make mounting for the HDD / 3.5"
    - Make a holder for the thing that holds the zorro daughterboard.
    - Make hole for 92mm fan on back and mouse-/joy.port
    - Paint all aluminium white/black
    - Make the Powerswitch work so i don't have to use the one on the back of the PSU
    - A couple of small thing I can't remember now

    Yet another small update (see first post as usual)
    Progress is slow but a few small thing now and then and it will eventually be finished

    - Make mounting for the HDD / 3.5"
    - Make hole for 92mm fan on back

    Small update.

    Modded the Mediator to allow a +3.3V ATI Radeon.. two new pictures in the first post.

    Wow... a Radeon is waaaay faster than a CVPPC... and DVI is a sweet bonus

    I am tempted I have the same case empty Nice detailed work mate I probably if I do this would put the original back of a4000d in that way no difficult cuts. But this result is really nice

    3 pages of truly inspiring work. There are some skill sets required to do this kind of work & when you see a guy folding his own Aluminium sheet using a chopping board, you know the guy has some serious tenacity. I can't believe no one has voted for this thread yet, so I most certainly have & recommend it for Sticky Status too.

    Simply fantastic fella.

    Thanks!!

    Not much happening with the finishing touches...
    The weather is getting better/warmer as it's soon summer so I can start the finishing painting. Not a good idea to paint in the apartment so it has to be done outside

    But everything is working fine and the little circuit for the power switch works like a charm.. very neat to be able to use the original button on the tower

    Beautiful tower & great skills...
    Nice work !

    Is there more 5.25" bays on the case or just 1+1 for disk drive ?
    Proud owner of all existing models of Amiga except A3000T and CDTV...
    By the way, anyone has a CDTV for sale?

    Default Mediator 3.3V modification working!

    Thanks for the Mediator modification info. I've just modded my Mediator A1200 LT4 in exactly the same way, and my ATI Radeon 256 MB is working. Awesome
